    Seinfeld set the bar high but AD set it even higher, I've got no doubt in my mind about that.

    William Sanderson has been in damned near every movie made in the last 20 yers, it seems. To top it off, he's a damned good character actor. Despite all that, most people still recognize him as Larry from Larry, Darryl, and Darryl from Bob Newhart's second show.

    Well, I have to admit, the non-threatening dreadlocks scared me far less than the pantyhose on the head routine. And having an old geezer in the band really helped too!

    Watched episode #2 last night ("There's always money in the banana stand.") and re-watched episode #1 with the wife because she was upset I watched it without her. Despite watching it 48 hours earlier, I still laughed.

    So, I've got to start watching this tomorrow because I just watched Requiem for a Dream and next up is Hotel Rwanda, so I'm going to need a little comedic interlude so I don't, you know, kill myself.

    Hotel Rwanda was a lot more uplifting than depressing IMO. But you should still start watching AD immediately.

    Arrested Development

    Okay, after watching the first six episodes last night I'm hooked. I think I figured out the reason I wasn't pulled in by the show's first run too.

    The pilot isn't that great. There are a couple of really funny parts but in general it has been my least favorite of the episodes so far. The other reason I was uninspired at first was because, due to all the rave reviews, I was expecting a ton of laugh-out-loud funny moments, and while the show has its fair share I'm realizing the appeal is in the really clever humor. Some of the more slapstick moments are the most laugh-out-loud funny (I was roffling at Michael repeatedly burning himself on the cornball machine), but for every one of those there are jokes like "Those were 18th century agrarian classes... but I guess the same principle applies. Are any of you concerned about.. an uprising?"
